Editorial Today's confirmation that Apple is going x86 makes today a historic day in the industry. It may mean that Microsoft might see a few percent decline of their market share the next few years, but what about Linux? If Linux were to lose an equal amount of share it would alter its spread to the desktop, a spread that has been very positive so far.

well apple's hardware, now that its going x86. will be a full fledged pc. with nearly standard hardware. but probably a special bios. that enables osX. if the motherboard goes bad, you still can't just buy a new motherboard. you will have to go to apple. this is what makes running a mac less desirable. And the switch to x86 processors has not fixed it.
